Bold is Beautiful
The Innovative ErgoLift Hinge Design
The VivoBook S15 (S530) has done away with monotonous laptop colours, opting instead for striking hues that catch the eye. ASUS designers have added a dash of style and personality to personal computing, adopting a colour-blocking approach by pairing bright and bold colours for laptops that visually pop. These laptops are available in Firmament Green, Star Grey, Silver Blue, Gun Metal, and Icicle Gold. Firmament Green features a textured woven finish surrounding the keyboard, while Icicle Gold sports a brushed finish with diamond-inspired motifs. In addition to their colour-blocking designs, the VivoBook S15 (S530) features the innovative ErgoLift hinge to make long typing stints more comfortable. This unique design automatically tilts the keyboard by 3.5° when the laptop is opened to create the familiar feel of a desktop keyboard. The hinge also opens up extra ventilation space for more airflow around the underside of the chassis for improved cooling.
NanoEdge Display for Unrivaled Immersion
The New Three-sided NanoEdge Design
The VivoBook S15 (S530) is the first in the VivoBook Series to feature the new three-sided NanoEdge design that has even narrower bezels along the top and sides of the display. This gives the VivoBook S15 (S530) an 86% screen-to-body ratio for unrivaled immersion in a much more compact package. The panels also feature wide-viewing IPS technology and exceptional colour reproduction for lifelike visuals even when viewed from extreme positions.
The portable VivoBook S15 (S530) is smaller than other laptops in its class, with profiles that taper to just 18mm at their thinnest point. The 15.6-inch VivoBook S15 (S530) weighs only 1.8kg and can easily slip into a messenger bag or backpack with ease.
The VivoBook S15 (S530) is powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors with 8GB RAM and NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 graphics perfect for multitasking, multimedia editing, or casual gaming. It has a dual-storage design that provides users with the blistering data speeds of its 256GB SSD, and a large capacity 1TB HDD.

Its top speed of up to 867Mbps is 6X faster than 802.11n for seamless video-streaming, smooth web-surfing and lag-free gaming.
Accessing VivoBook has never been easier or more secure. The fingerprint sensor built into the touchpad provides one-touch access with Windows Hello.
